…and the living is easy…

July 18, 2014

It’s Summertime. And yes, the living is easy… at least for me, living in this glorious place. This morning on my walk they were busy setting up for the Triathlon this weekend. The entire area around the Fisherman’s Monument was swarming with scaffolds, chairs, tables, giant orange floats and endless racks for hanging bikes.

The registration area is set up at the skate park at Playa Norte and it looks like the awards stage will be in front of the Fisherman’s Monument. Racing will take place Friday (for children) and Saturday for the full Triatholon. There are athletes here from the US, Guatemala and Mexico.

Those of us who usually exercise on the malecón in the morning were treated to the addition of an obstacle course to our workout as we stepped over scaffolds, wires, ladders, chairs, and all the rest. Made for a different workout today for sure!

It is energizing to see all those elite athletes whizzing by in packs of bicycles you hear first by the buzzing of their narrow tires. Runners fly by, their feet barely touching the ground, looking as though they could run all day. Sure made me step a little faster, for sure.

I love my mornings here in Mazatlán, where I wake up with a smile to the sunshine and share such a beautiful morning with other like minded Mazatlecos. These pictures are some more palapa signage from my walk today.

    1. It’s been over 25 years since I have been to Mazatlan, but one thing I remember was the incredible seafood. It looks from the palapa signs that that hasn’t changed!

      1. Shannon, It sure would be great if you came West sometime! But we’ll probably see you in SMA one of these days!

        Steve, Yes, I expected your BP would go down once you got home! Now don’t mix up those medicines again! 🙂

    1. You are so correct. I flew back to Melaque yesterday afternoon. And my blood pressure dropped back into normal range. It may have been the proper medication kicking in, but I like to think that Mexico simply relaxes me. By the way,thank you for your concern.
